ianwelby (744) - - JUN 24, 2013
Clear golden beer with a zesty hop aroma. The flavour is a very sharp, sweet citrus with hops, leaving a sweet, tangy finish. Nice but the strength and sweetness mean I wouldn’t want more than a couple at most.

Cokemonkey11 (181) - - JUN 27, 2015
Devilishly hoppy. 330ml, brown bottle, cork and cask. Scent is medium iipa yeast. Pours medium amber with a medium tan head subsiding slowly. Transparent. Scent is a bit flowery. Taste is dense yeast character with sweet high notes. Complex. Finish is a bit harsh but clean and dry. Great.

Russo (1868) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2015
Golden hazy color with a nice white head that disappear very quickly. Aroma is hoppy and sweet, some citrus notes. Flavor is pretty much as the aroma but more sweet. Low carbonation and medium to full body with a hoppy finish.

wyzzywyz22 (2102) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle from Chester Beer & Wine. Golden amber pour with a small white head. Citrus, tropical fruit, yeast and bready malts in the beak. Sweet, fragrant hoppy flavour with the ABV well smothered. Hops not quite singing here but its drinkable and tasty enough stuff.

330ml bottle, pours golden and clear, with a hint of copper in the colour. the head stays shortly. apples and pears, with cereals and grassy tones in the nose. the palate is refreshing, a touch of sweetness, with a malty finish. A pretty decent beer.

PapaVillum (658) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 29, 2015
Rating # 600! 330 ml, flaske, 8,3 % ABV, BB: 11/2015, købt i Brune Rousse Houblon i Nice, Sydfrankrig, 29. april 2015 (Kir' + AVP 10 år). Ravfarvet skotsk Double IPA med pænere hvid skumtop på 2-3 cm. Denne svinder til lette gardiner og et par mm tykkelse. I næsen har vi humlearoma af blomster og citrus. Maltaroma af nødder. Appelsin og honning. Fin bitterhumlet smag med masser af humle og moderat let sødme. Ganske tør mundfølelse. Velsmagende og let syrlig samt skarp på tungen. Kroppen er medium fyldig med en frisk og medium karbonering. Konsistensen olieret. Afslutningen er bittersød, kort og velsmagende. Charmerende og grundig Double IPA fra et spændende ølland og et bryggeri, jeg gerne vil stifte nærmere bekendtskab med.

Idiosynkrasie (4911) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 10, 2015
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey, faint golden colour with average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy and slightly grassy, hoppy aroma, lemon notes, a touch of lime and lemongrass. Taste is mouldy, sweaty, resinous, bitter hoppy, slightly papery, cautious citrusy hoppy interludes. Disappointing.
